Pelham Manor as described in 1938 [1]

Pelham Manor, a purely suburban community, was named for Thomas Pell, who in 1644 purchased lands along Long Island Sound from the Siwanoys. The title was later confirmed by King James II of England and the territory formed into the Manor of Pelham.

On Pelhamdale Avenue is the former route of a tiny trolley that is said to have given Fontaine Fox, the cartoonist, the inspiration for his Toonerville Trolley sketches. The line followed the street from Pelham Road to the Pelham Railroad Station.
